9 Apps to Help You Work Your Inner Designer

2017-09-13_11-51-56By now, we’re all well aware of the inspiration, discovery and even expression that apps like Instagram and Pinterest offer designers and design enthusiasts alike. But what’s the new new in tech for the creative set when they want to get their inner decorator or DIYer on? We polled designers, trend experts and influencers from the home decor world to get the scoop on what apps make their jobs easier, more fun and more inspiring—or all three.

Hayley Francis, Trend & Design Expert at The Mine:

“Recently I’ve been loving Pantone Studio app (above), which puts all Pantone colors at my fingertips. It also allows me to upload images and extract the colors from that image, which is super convenient when I find inspiration images or architecture with colors I’d like to use for future projects.”

Stomp to Bristol!

fbimg1457622158169Saturday, October 14th from 9 AM to 3 PM

17 mile walk from Trenton, NJ to Bristol PA

(start time subject to change)

Join FreeWalkers and the East Coast Greenway in our Stomp to Bristol, with a special route this year visiting additional points of historic interest.

This 17-mile walk through Trenton and Lower Bucks County along the Delaware Canal and East Coast Greenway will take you through Revolutionary battle locations in Trenton, past General Washington’s headquarters in Morrisville, through the stagecoach village of Fallsington where William Penn established the first Quaker meeting in America in 1683, into the nation’s largest single-developer town of Levittown that pioneered suburban planning, and all about post-industrial Bristol as it undergoes just its latest economic shift and rebirth. We will experience the colonial festival that is Fallsington Day and get to know Robert Morris, perhaps the most undersung of our founding fathers. We will also pass the local hop where the “kids in Bristol were sharp as a pistol,” inspiring the 1960s song, The Bristol Stomp.

Convenient shopping for provisions en route and many lunchtime options including Pennsylvania Dutch food, cheesesteaks, hoagies and fast food.

Starts at the Trenton Transit Center and ends at Bristol Station. Bristol Station marks the end of the Delaware Canal and is about a 10 minute SEPTA rail ride back to Trenton, about 30 minutes from Center City, Philadelphia. Bus and train connection to both Trenton and Bristol are present along the route in Levittown and Morrisville.

The event is FREE and open to everyone.

Walk Highlights:
– Mill Hill Park
– NJ Capitol
– Old Barracks
– Morrisville levee / Trenton skyline
– Summserseat
– Historic Fallsington
– Levittown
– Falls Township Community Park
– Delaware Canal
– Bristol Amish Market

Intermediate transit options:

Declutter (In a Big Way!)

2017-07-12_10-39-19I recently moved to a new place, and most of my things came with me. The moving process gave me a much-needed opportunity to survey the things I own and decide if I wanted to keep them and bring them to the new place, or find a new home for them (which, yeah, includes the trash can in a few instances).

It was tough to decide what would stay and what would go, but one question helped me along the way:

If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?

Imagine you’re in a store, holding the object in your hand. Would you pay to bring it home? If so, then it’s an easy addition to the “keep” pile. If not, you have a little more fuel to help you decide it needs to find its way out of your home.

It applies to clothes and decor, to tech and to tools. And this one question causes you to weigh in on a few other considerations at the same time:
